Fruits Basket Mochi from Fruits Basket

Fruits Basket recently started airing! As I was watching, I thought the little zodiac figurines would make for great daifuku, so that’s what I decided to do this week. Daifuku, if ya didn’t know, are little balls of mochi normally filled with fruit, red bean paste, or some other kind of filling. I’ve made daifuku before,…

Dimple Jello Dessert from Mob Psycho 100

Dimple from Mob Psycho 100 claims he doesn’t taste very good, but I beg to differ. Following up on my gluten-free Mob-themed curry from a few weeks ago, I wanted to hit hard with a Dimple dessert. The best thing I could think to represent his gelatinous, goopy form of spiritual energy was Jello. As unimpressive…

Rimuru Mizu Mochi from Slime

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime just ended, and I am devastated. I mean, that might be a little over-exaggerated, but seriously, I was surprised by how much I liked it! Okay, wait.

Gluten-Free Japanese Curry inspired by Mob Psycho

Read the original post here, or see below! The funny thing about cooking A LOT is that I often find that out-of-the-ordinary food preferences—like veganism, vegetarianism, and gluten intolerance—become a lot less formidable. Once you really know your way around the cooking process and you can understand the basic components of a recipe—why certain things…

Raphtalia’s Cinnamon Rolls inspired by “Shield Hero”

See below, or read the original post here. No one asked for this, but that’s okay. I’m just here to tell you that Raphtalia from The Rising of the Shield Hero is SO CUTE, and her ears kinda remind me of cinnamon rolls. Therefore, I decided that we needed to make some cinnamon rolls to…

Crunchyroll #124: Slime from That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime!

Everyone told me That Time I Was Reincarnated as a Slime was good, and BOY were you all right. I FINALLY started watching it while working out in the morning, and I’m absolutely loving it. Rimuru is an awesome character who I love because he’s just so…chill. Like, seriously, we finally have a rational, level-headed…
